Vermeer Corp.s’ D9x13 Series II Navigator horizontal directional drill (HDD) is designed for confined jobsites and areas where surface disturbance to turf, such as residential and commercial lawns, is a concern. The newly introduced compact model will be especially useful for fiber-to-the-home and other utility installations. The new D9x13 is designed to accommodate 300 feet (91.4 m) of drill rod, which allows for the completion of long distance bores and the two-speed rotational gearbox helps enhance controllability, allowing the operator to increase backreaming speed when conditions allow. Contractors will appreciate the compact frame, which measures just 35.5 inches (90.2 cm) wide making it the narrowest machine in its class.
